Description

Right now the open-mesh.org private openwrt feed for alfred has no really usecase. It is only there and sometimes will be updated after releases and sometimes not. There is a better openwrt feed for alfred which is already part of the default openwrt feeds.conf.default called "routing" (https://github.com/openwrt-routing/packages). An extra feed only increases the time required for maintenance work (update after releases, adding important patches, fix compatibility problems, ....) without any extra benefits. It may even lead to people which are using an currently incompatible version (see #249 as an example for a similar problem with the extra batman-adv feed).

The current maintainer of alfred (Simon Wunderlich) already thought about removing it.

I could therefore do following:

  1. Make the feed invisible in gitweb
  2. Replace references to it in
  3. Remove the content of the feed and replace it with a README informing the user that he has to switch to https://github.com/openwrt-routing/packages.git

This will avoid breakage of build scripts of companies/projects when they correctly use commit identifiers in their feeds file. Build scripts not using commit ids are lost anyway but at least they have information where to find the package.

Please discuss this and report about the decision what to do with the OpenWrt feed openwrt-feed-alfred.git
